Ouch, sharp intake of breath,  I would have gone for a brushless motor and speed controller at much less.    <:(  Just my opinion.  Got a name for her yet ?

my dad fabricated a brass bit for the rudder for me as the standard white metal one is a bit rubbish and they wanted it super glued i wanted something i could solder on so i wouldnt have any trouble at the lake side when shes finished
